Being away from home made me miss some typical Polish cuisine, so for today I've decided to introduce one of the most popular dishes in Poland: Knedle



1 large egg or 2 small
1 cup of flour
500 grams of cooked potatoes
7 ripe plums
2 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp cinnamon


First, we boil potatoes and mash them when they are ready. We mix the flour, egg and the mashed potatoes - kneading the dough until a non-sticky mass is obtained. Next, we carve the plums and spread sugar and cinnamon over them, we can also add few drops of lemon. From the prepared dough we form small balls (about 6cm wide) and put the prepared plums inside - making sure to seal them properly. Finally, we boil the water and add a pinch of salt. The prepared "knedle" should be gently put into the boiling water and cooked for about 3-4 minutes - until they start to "pop out" of the water. We then prepare the topping by melting the butter and mixing it with honey and cinnamon. "Knedle" are served warm with the cinnamon-honey topping. As always, enjoy!:D
